The Namesake

Continuity mistake: In the scene just before Ashoke travels to Ohio, his moustache is primarily black with a bit of grey at the edges. The scene that immediately follows, when he arrives in his apartment in Ohio, shows Ashoke having a completely grey moustache.

Continuity mistake: Asoke tells Gogol that when he was injured in the train accident, he had just one book with him: 'The Overcoat' by Gogol. Yet when he is rescued in the flashback, he holds pages from the book 'The Collected Tales and Plays of Nikolai Gogol'



Continuity mistake: In the airport scene, while the family is returning to India after the death of Ashima's father, we cannot find baby Sonia at all. In fact Ashima's both hands have been shown to be free; even Ashoke is shown to not have Sonia. However after a few shots suddenly the baby can be seen being carried by Ashima.
